Pryers helped our client receive justice after a negligent prescription of opioid prescription led to years of withdrawal symptoms.

Sean, 32, suffered a lower back injury during his service in the Army and was subsequently discharged from the military, Unfortunately, his symptoms continued, and Sean sought advice from both his GP and his local hospital.

The hospital provided intermittent care and treatment, however, the GP prescribed Sean a variety of opioid medications with variable dosage for a 3-4-year period.

Sean began to experience some concerning symptoms and attended his local hospital. After various investigations within the Endocrinology Department, which deals with matters of the endocrine system and, subsequently, the hormones it produces, Sean was diagnosed with a condition known as Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism. This is a form of hypogonadism that can be induced by the use opioids.

As a result, Sean was prescribed medication to counteract and balance his symptoms. Withdrawing from the opioid medication proved very challenging, and although he did manage to withdraw from it over a 2-year period, it was not without suffering from withdrawal symptoms for many years.

Pryers found that Sean’s GP failed to fully consider the dangers of prescribing opioid medication, which can include the risk of addiction, or explore any of the viable alternatives, such as attending a pain management programme, receiving facet joint injections and performing a psychiatric assessment. This led to Sean suffering from the Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism and withdrawal symptoms.
